Should Employers be required to provide interview feedback?

Global companies (incl 02, Fujitsu, Network Rail,) are backing a campaign which aims to force employers to provide feedback to interviewed candidates.

Research shows that a staggering 4 in 5 job seekers who are interviewed in person do not receive any feedback whatsoever from the interviewing company.

Some companies claim a lack of time is the reasoning for not providing the candidate with any feedback. This can be very disheartening for job seekers never knowing any positive or negative aspects of the interview. Some hold out and potentially lose out on other jobs as they wait to hear back from an employer they really wished to work for.

What are your thoughts on forcing an employer to provide an interviewed candidate with feedback on how the interview went?
